2015 Update SBx7-7 Supplement Report

Agricultural water agencies in California are required to comply with Senate Bill X7-7 (SBx7-7), the Water Conservation Act of 2009, which requires, among other things, the preparation of an updated agricultural water management plan in 2015. CWD is a United States Bureau of Reclamation (USBR) contractor that has an approved water management plan that was prepared according to the USBR criteria; however, additional supplemental information must be submitted to California Department of Water Resources (DWR) to comply with the requirements of SBx7-7. CWD has prepared an update to its prior SBx7-7 Supplement Report and the CWD Board of Directors will hold a hearing to consider public comments on the proposed revisions to the SBx7-7 Supplement Report.

A copy of the updated SBx7-7 Supplement Report, along with the current USBR water management plan, may be viewed at the CWD office at 327 S. Chowchilla Blvd., Chowchilla, CA 93610 or viewed on the CWD website at

Written comments, submitted prior to the public hearing, should be directed to: Douglas Welch, 327 S. Chowchilla Blvd., Chowchilla, CA 93610 Comments may also be provided at the public hearing.
